As an award-winning cake designer, with a focus on trend-led and stylish designs, I understand how important it is for your luxury wedding cake to look elegant and stand out. I also understand, however, you want your guests to enjoy eating your wedding cake as much as looking at it. That’s why I’m passionate about creating luxury wedding cake flavours that don’t disappoint. I have an extensive wedding cake menu for couples to choose from, but today I’m going to share a small selection – to help answer the question: what is a luxury wedding cake flavour?
I adore creating exciting flavour pairings that guests will not only enjoy but remember for years to come. However, there is something to be said for classic and simple cake flavours – when made well. I always use the best ingredients in my wedding cakes and these, along with my professional experience, ensure even the simplest wedding cake flavour is still luxury.
Don’t be deceived by the less than luxury reputation of everyday vanilla sponge cakes. My moist Madagascan vanilla sponge is far from bland or dry. With layers of either strawberry or raspberry preserve and simple but delicious vanilla buttercream, it’s the ultimate, classic, luxury wedding cake flavour. Refined and understated.
For those who still hold onto the romance of a traditional wedding, with fond memories of eating Grandma’s baking, the classic fruit cake is a must. The difference between a shop bought (or even homemade) fruit cake and my Luxurious Signature Fruit Cake is the quality of ingredients. Not only do I use oak-aged brandy-soaked vine fruits, I also layer each fruit cake with a luxury marzipan.
That’s quite a name to live up to but my Ultimate Belgian Chocolate cake is sure to get guests talking. Classic and simple – yes, dry and dull – absolutely not. With indulgent layers of Belgian chocolate sponge, and a rich chocolate or silky vanilla buttercream, my Ultimate Belgian Chocolate cake will leave you wanting more.
Speaking of chocolate, I also offer couples a selection of luxury chocolate-based flavour pairings. They are a wonderful way to incorporate everyone’s love of chocolate but in a less classic and more contemporary way.
Hazelnut and chocolate are a match made in heaven, and the perfect example of a luxury wedding cake flavour pairing. Using quality ingredients, my Hazelnut Tuxedo cake has layers of Classic Vanilla and Ultimate Belgium Chocolate sponges (with a hazelnut syrup drizzle), and delectable chocolate and hazelnut buttercream.
A favourite with grooms and children alike, my Cookies & Cream cake takes the familiar and comforting taste of Oreos and transforms it into a luxury cake flavour. Contemporary and mouth-watering, layers of my Ultimate Belgian Chocolate cake (incorporating crushed Oreos) are assembled with a crushed Oreo buttercream.
Luxurious Belgian chocolate also comes in white, creating the base flavour of my Belgian White Chocolate & Passion Fruit cake. A decadent white chocolate chip sponge is layered with white chocolate buttercream and passion fruit curd. It’s a luxury wedding cake flavour sure to delight your guests’ taste buds. It will also stand out for all the right reasons.
With fruit and delightful flavours on the mind, I couldn’t answer the question ‘what is a luxury wedding cake flavour’ without including some fruity options from my menu. Fruit adds an instant freshness to a cake flavour. Plus, when combined with other handpicked flavours, fruit creates interesting and luxurious pairings.
My Strawberries & Champagne cake is a perfect example. It’s the ‘adult’ version of my Classic Vanilla cake. It still has class and elegance, but with an additional infusion of flavour to really lock in that luxury quality. Pink champagne syrup is soaked into my Classic Vanilla sponge, then layered with strawberry curd and lashings of champagne buttercream.
Another delightful fruit flavour is my Peach Melba cake. With peach-syrup infused raspberry sponge cake layers, peach coulis, raspberry curd, and peach buttercream – it’s a luxury cake flavour pairing of the highest quality. Stylish and contemporary, like an expertly crafted cocktail.
Also featuring the luscious flavour of fruit, my Lemon & Raspberry cake is a fresh flavour combination. Lemon-infused sponge is drizzled with lemon syrup, then layered with raspberry and lemon curd and an exquisite raspberry buttercream. Sweet, fruity and with a zing of zest, it’s a luxury and delightful flavour in equal measure.
